We have been coming to Destin for nearly a dozen years and no trip is complete without a meal at Dewey Destin's. The colossal shrimp are the best on the planet.

The stuffed shrimp was everyone's fave. The boiled shrimp was awesome. Jalapenos in the hushpuppies were a nice kick. I would definitely recommend.

We LOVE this place. We stay at the Best Western in Ft. Walton Beach. It is a short trip over the bridge to Dewey Destin Seafood on Crab Island in Destin. The ambiance leaves a lot to be desired. Don't get dressed up. Shorts and T-shirts are good. You sill be sitting at picnic tables on the pier. I always... More

The best seafood on the Gulf Coast can be enjoyed at Dewey Destin. A little off the beaten path but people from everywhere find it and make repeat visits during their stay in Destin. Everything is good although I'd get a fried basket just to get the hush puppies!! Go early to avoid a long line and be able to... More

Dewey Destin's has incredible seafood for a good price! The line was pretty long to get food, but worth it for sure!

Best place in Florida to grab the Ebola Virus, as the uncovered picnic tables are left nasty from prior customers whom have just finished dining. Food is all fried and bland. For those that think this restaurant has great seafood, tooooo bad you've never had seafood, except from a McDonalds type establishment. Over-priced, and hope you don't contract from the... More

Having eat here in 2013, we looked forward to our return visit. MY wife and I both ordered the blacken grouper. While it was very good, it wasn't the best meal we had during this trip. Maybe we were expecting too much after such a great experience last year. We will return next year.

We went late but the food was still fresh. Service was great and orices were reasonable. The crab legs were perfection they were not over cooked. I went with several people who all got different entrées. Everyone was pleased with the food. I highly recommend this place.
